What are the primary needs within the Mennonite and Brethren in Christ family today? Conversations with national leaders worldwide place two items at the top of the list: leadership training and identity formation. Meeting in July of 1997, church leaders from five continents agreed that MWC would:

  • make available Consultation materials
  • encourage research and sharing
  • foster further dialogue and collaboration.

This book is the initial step towards meeting those objectives.
